Anonymous, 18 Feb 2009Simply Rocks.It's a smart-looking phone, but it doesn't rock that much. Aside from my previously-mentioned problem with the magnet, I've experienced the following negative issues:
- ring volume is not loud enough;
- there are no user-programmable profiles;
- no shortcuts to incoming call settings;
- the slider is a bit wobbly when closed.
It is an OK phone overall, but unless I can get it for cheap (which I did), I wouldn't recommend it.
I normally use a belt leather case with a magnetic closure. I've never had any problem with any other phone, but with the E740 (actually E747 in Canada), it appears that the magnet will cause the screen to turn on from sleep mode. It's not causing any unintended calls or affecting in-coming calls, but at the very least it would affect battery life.
Just wondering if anyone else has had similar experience with magnets affecting their cell phones.

How ... moreIf you want to put the pictures on ur computer you have to get the disk which comes with the phone and put it in you computer so it lets you download the program onto your computer, when it is finished downloading plug the phone in again and it should hopefully come up with a box saying Samsung PC Studio 3 and then you can download things on or off your phone. Hope tht helped :)

I've had this phone for a year now. Works fine never freezed or anything and dropped it a millon times =]
I will only change it Q3 next year
This mobile seemed good and all at first but,
whenever i slide my phone back to close it, the music player appears and wont disappear until i exit it.
nobody buy this mobile as it does freeze at times and it stuffs up quick. >
Now I am frightened when I look back at what I have written about my disappointment with the E740 and discover that a 'sticky' has appeared on the word phone in my text with a pop-up that makes it look as if I am promoting Nokia!!!! The world is full of the wicked.
I am very disappointed with this phone! It is freezing on me. I noticed trouble with it immediately I began to use it but tried to ignore the telltale signs of an unstable system, skipping of its own accord, not reading a select command and telling me that nothing is selected, frustrating. And the Users Guide is a scanty overview of functions and settings that helps little when searching what solutions there may be to the problems. If the seeming instability of the phone might be said to be the fault of an incompetent handling it then show me the errant who promotes this phone and sells it with its Excuse for a User Guide.
I brought the phone 2 begin with and when i got it home and was using it.. it froze and turned off... This phone is a piece of crap and i wouldnt buy.. i took it back and they gave me a new phone a different model.. i think this phone shouldnt be on the shelves anymore.. they sell u something that will stuff up, its illegal to sell u something that you dont even get ur moneys worth for... Its a piece of crap and i wouldnt buy it not even as a gift for any1...
It should be taken of the sheleves and stop taking ppl's money for SOMETHING YOU CANT EVEN USE!!!
TAKES THIS ITEM of the SHELEVES...
If u remove my comment again ill post it again!
ITS ILLEGAL & SHOULDNT BE ALLOWED TO BE SOLD!!!
